    Again, refrain from using the easy way (google) just think about the years and what would make sense, you may surprise yourselves. :wink:

    # 1 - J. Mehring of Germany is given credit for inventing this in 1857! What was it?

    # 2 - In 1865, in France, Abbe Collin perfected this piece of equipment! What was it?

    # 3 - (I'm gonna go a little easier on ya with this one)
    In 1891, E.C.Porter in the USA, developed this piece of equipment! What was it?

    Get one right :thumbsup:

    Get two right :clapping:

    Get all three right :bow:

    If I'm not mistaken, #3 must refer to the Porter bee escape, (a "one way door")used to remove bees from the super you want to remove from the hive.
    I haven't the faintest clue about #1 and #2.

    #3 is either "I Get A Kick Out of You" or else "I've Got You Under My Skin". right? :)

    I am going to guess Mehring invented the smoker and Collin invented the hive tool. Have not found these guys in the books yet so thought I would guess.

    Slowmodem = Thanks (I finally had to ask Charles to do it for me) :oops:

    Marbees - you are sooooooo close, but not quite. Half point! :thumbsup:
    (The credit for foundation rolls is given to the King brothers of New York in 1866, a device later improved enough to suit commercial purposes in 1875 by A.I. Root and A. Washburn.)

    I would try to answer #2, but I'm afraid my answer would be excluded.

    I had to exclude myself after I could not find the answer in the books and summoned google.

    # 1 - Foundation

    # 2 - Queen excluder (I think Iddee and ski had it)

    # 3 - Porter bee escape

    New questions tomorrow, not based so much on history. :wink:
